Concerts Announced for Joaquín Rodrigo Celebration As we recently announced, one of the Foundation for Iberian Music’s main events for 2019 will be “Joaquín Rodrigo: The Guitar and Beyond,” a festival commemorating the 20th anniversary of the composer’s death. We are excited to share the first concert dates for this festival. There will be a series of three chamber music concerts at NYC’s Hispanic Society, beginning December 6. Joaquín Rodrigo wrote a significant number of important and very beautiful works of chamber music, almost all of which is surprisingly little known. This opening concert of the Rodrigo series highlights masterworks of chamber music composed between 1929 and 1982. The program will include works for violin and piano such as Set Cançons Valencianes (Seven Valencian Songs), Rumaniana and the brilliant Sonata pimpante as well as Siciliana and Sonata a la breve for cello and piano. Attendance is free, but please RSVP by emailing the Hispanic Society at firstname.lastname@example.org. 6:30 pm (pre-concert lecture) 7:00 pm (concert) American Academy of Arts & Letters 632 West 156 Street, NYC The next concerts in the series will be in the spring of 2019, on April 4 and May 2.
